Sorry for taking so long to get back to you! In my opinion if your sound and range are suffering, perhaps you should have a word with your teacher to see if he/she thinks you should alter your playing position. A good sound is really the most important thing to think about as a trumpeter. Don't worry too much if your embouchure doesn't look right - I play slightly off centre as does Simon and we manage OK!!!
